What’s the matter with the way we think about national politics? Why, everything—and boy, are we ever glad you asked! Join founding editor Thomas Frank, senior editor Chris Lehmann, and erstwhile Baffler DC bureau chief Jim Newell for a rousing autopsy of the diseased state of national discourse, convened appropriately enough in Our Nation’s Capital. Up for discussion will be just how and why the leading voices in our political and media establishments have so little to say about the signature issue of our age: the yawning chasm of wealth inequality. You don’t have to be rich to be a respectable DC pundit—but it sure helps!
